A new source of hydrogen for fuel-cell vehicles
MIT Technology Review
A new method for making hydrogen directly from plants could be an inexpensive way to generate fuel for alternative vehicles, perhaps paving the way for hydrogen refueling stations that rely on agricultural waste. For several years, Percival Zhang, a professor of biological systems engineering at Virginia Tech, has been developing an enzymatic method to break complex sugars — like those found in plant material — into their component parts. Zhang's process is "cell-free," meaning it does not require microorganisms like those used in fermentation.

FedEx uses 15 hydrogen fuel cell tractors
Energy Manager Today
FedEx rolled out hydrogen fuel cell ground support equipment (GSE). Under a $2.5 million grant awarded from the Department of Energy, FedEx is operating the 15 hydrogen fuel cell-powered Charlatte GSEs and a Plug Power hydrogen fueling station. The 15 hydrogen fuel cell powered GSE cargo tractors are now part of a fleet of more than 1,500 gas, diesel and electric cargo tractors at the FedEx World Hub in Memphis, Tennessee.

DOE awards funding to projects focused on hydrogen fuel storage
Hydrogen Fuel News
The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that $4.6 million in funding will be issued to four projects that are meant to develop advanced hydrogen storage materials. These projects may be critical to the future of hydrogen fuel in the future, as modern storage methods are often considered inefficient and expensive. Advanced storing materials may aid in the commercialization of hydrogen fuel and fuel cell technologies, paving the way for a hydrogen economy at some point in the future.

Researchers create hydrogen fuel using corn waste
Insider Car News
Ethanol has gotten a bad rap in the automotive world, but corn might be getting ready to make a comeback. Thanks to hard work of some researchers at Virginia Tech, drivers one day might be refueling their vehicle using the waste associated with corn crops. The researchers devised a way to create hydrogen using corn waste. Some have spoken out against ethanol, saying that it actually harms the food industry by pumping up the price of corn.

Hydrogen fuel cell development launched in Thailand
Hydrogen Fuel News
AFC Energy, a prominent developer of hydrogen fuel cells, will be working with Bangkok Industrial Gas in order to develop a new fuel cell system. The development of this system will take place over three stages and will be the first time AFC Energy has developed such a system in Thailand. The two companies will evaluate viable deployment strategies for the fuel cell system in the coming months, hoping to gather some insight on the market demands concerning hydrogen fuel and clean energy.

Nebraska power plant to use hydrogen fuel, slash CO2 emissions
Environmental Leader
Nebraska Public Power District, the state's largest electric utility, plans to replace an existing coal-fired boiler at its Sheldon Station plant in Hallam with one that uses clean-burning hydrogen fuel — a move the utility expects to reduce CO2 emissions at the plant by 1.1 million tons per year. Monolith Materials will produce the hydrogen as a co-product from its production of carbon black using natural gas as a feedstock. When burned, the hydrogen fuel produces zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Toshiba demos PV, fuel-cell, battery, hydrogen system
Energy Manager Today
Toshiba is demonstrating operation of its H2One, an independent energy supply system based on renewable energy and use of hydrogen as a fuel for power generation. Toshiba installed the system at two locations in Kawasaki: the Kawasaki Marien public facility and Higashi-Ogishima-Naka Park in the Kawasaki Port area. H2One combines a photovoltaic installation, storage batteries, hydrogen-producing water electrolysis equipment, hydrogen and water tanks, and fuel cells.
